If you haven't seen the new issue of Dwell, they're featuring possibly the coolest house I've ever seen. The Worple residence on Lake Huron is clad in modern slats of raw cedar, has unreal views of a private cove and the lake, offers easy boat access, is filled with soft Douglas fir on the inside, and features custom fixtures, sinks, backsplashes, fireplaces, staircases, etc. etc.. Unreal house. And it's actually floating on massive pontoons. Check out these photos - and be sure to read Dwell for even better pics:
